I have a liver disease and feel very uncomfortable taking a statin, despite the doctor saying it was safe as long as they did live function tests every six months. I had terrible muscle cramps in my legs when I first started, but after a few weeks it has subsided. Are there any specific foods that help reduce cholesterol naturally? or lifestyle changes that could be made, other than exercise. I also have myasthenia gravis and cannot exercise but very little. If there is anyone with any suggestions I'd appreciate them.
